I've been down quite a bit of late. The marriage went through a rocky patch and with it my belief in us as a couple.
This morning, I was morosely contemplating this parting of ways when Vicky helpfully pointed out that we've been together five years.
My god. If I've stuck to the man for five years I may as well just stay on. All this time I was thinking of the three years we've been married and airily adding "some time" before it. And thinking, it's not too much to throw up and walk away.
But five years. I'm so proud of myself right now. I've never been with anybody that long. (Nor has he but really, there's only one me, you know. Don't you believe what they say about a Suecker being born every minute.)
It also strikes me that I've been around Dipali too long if I could write Suecker without waiting for her to say it first. Hmmm...
